LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., March 13, 2013

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Air Products (NYSE:APD)―the
world's leading hydrogen supplier and operator of the world's largest hydrogen
distribution network―has developed a new microsite designed to help hydrogen
users improve efficiency and lower overall costs. The dedicated website is
loaded with information and tools to aid hydrogen users in selecting the most
cost-effective gas supply option for their specific operation, as well as help
them increase process efficiency, optimize gas usage, and improve safety.

Air Products' hydrogen support website explains the range of gas supply
options available from the company, including:

  oCryoEase® microbulk solution for smaller volume users, which is an
    alternative to traditional cylinder supply that eliminates the hassle of
    cylinder handling and the supply interruption that occurs during cylinder
  oGaseous and liquid bulk hydrogen for larger volume users, which is
    delivered by tanker or trailer and stored on a customer's site;
  oPRISM® hydrogen generation systems, which enable on-site gas production
    for a more reliable, uninterrupted gas supply;
  oCryogenic Hydrogen Compressor system for high-pressure hydrogen, which is
    a load-following system that closely matches output to changing demand
    requirements; and
  oAir Products Express Services, which is a fast and flexible option for
    short-term or emergency hydrogen supply.

The dedicated website contains contact information so hydrogen users can reach
experienced Air Products engineers who can recommend the most efficient and
cost-effective supply mode based on their volume, pressure, purity level, flow
rate, and operating pattern.

The hydrogen support website also hosts interactive conversion tools,
including Air Products' new Gas Converter mobile app, which quickly converts
weight and volume measures for hydrogen and other common industrial gases. In
addition, microsite visitors can access technical literature on topics such as
hydrogen supply, hydrogenation, and hydrotreating technologies, as well as
read case studies to learn how other companies have benefited from Air
Products' hydrogen solutions.
